The two defecting top members of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were received at the presidential villa by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the defection of the PDP bigwigs from Bauchi State came barely 24 hours after the president received various members of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Support Groups from the North East, who defected to the ruling APC.

NAN reports that the defectors who were accompanied by Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi state, met behind closed doors with President Buhari for about 35 minutes.

President Buhari had on Monday also received delegation of the North East political stakeholders including the defectors led by Umar Bukar Bolori, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The defectors included the former governor of old Borno state, Alhaji Mohammed Goni and a onetime deputy governor of Adamawa, Alhaji saad Tahir.

Alhaji Adamu Muazu, former governor of Bauchi state, and a former National Chairman of PDP also defected to APC.

His defection has excited his supporters and those of President Muhammadu Buhari. His latest public outing early in the week attracted cheers and praises for him and Buhari.

In his twitter handle, he said on Saturday that he was overwhelmed by the reception accorded him.
